Stationary Box

First things first...THANK YOU to all of you who gave your input on cameras!! It has been a huge help!! I am super excited to go get one...I am going in the next couple of days to get one. I have been doing all sorts of research online. Now it's time to go try the ones I like. Shawn was a huge help...he brought home one of his fancy pants cameras home from work and let me look at it and take a few pics (see photos above) to see what I liked and didn't like! As of now I think I am going with a Canon Rebel XS...Costco has the best deal right now! I know you will all be anxious to hear what I get...so I will update you soon!
Alright...post details! I first saw this on my friend Tiffany's blog. Then when I started looking around on Splitcoast I found tons! I found a few sets of directions there...I used pieces of a few to make this one. Here is a link to make the box...Jackie Topa's directions are fab! This is for a special friend of mine! I hope she will like it! I used the Crew Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit. My "notes, tags, birthday and stamps" words were just printed on my computer and then I punched them out with an oval punch. Inside are 6 cards with envelopes, 4 3x3 note cards with envelopes, 5 tags, a birthday book (each page has a month on it so you can keep track of birthdays throughout the year) and a place for stamps of course...oh and a pen. I attached my birthday book with velcro so that it can be removed easily for use but have a stable place to be stored.
Thanks for being patient with me...Have a fabulous, stampalicious day!!!
chat at ya later!

This is great! I just made one the other day. I like the idea better that you ut velcro under the book..
I will do that next time. I put velcro on the "flaps" that go behind the box for easier closing on the lid. Stephanie

Next time I want to make one of these!!!! That is absolutely adorable and also so practical!
Congrats on the new camera too, that one had a lot of top marks in the research I have been doing too-you have graduated to the big time now! I think I am going to go for the durable, water proof one by Olympus- drop proof is very important for me.

This is very cute. I'll have to try one of these. Congrats on the new camera. Isn't it fun playing with a new toy! I'm still learning things on mine and I've had it for over 2 years. The pictures you have taken with it look wonderful.
